New Delhi, Oct 27: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday, Oct 27 demanded information on two policemen, who went missing for months from West Midnapore.
After meeting Home Minister P Chidambaram, Banerjee said, "I along with the families of two missing constables met the Home Minister. He said he was upset and equally concerned. Though law and order is a state subject, he assured of all possible help in searching for them."
Banerjee also accused Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had misled the country. "West Bengal chief minister has misled the country, distorted the facts and misled the people and families of abducted policemen. It's a matter of great concern," she said.
The two constables Kanchan Garai and Sabir Ali Mollah had been whisked away by Maoists on Jul 30 from West Midnapore district, and there has been no trace of them since, sources said.
Last Saturday, Oct 24, Bhattacharjee made a remark regarding the "death" of two policemen. That created a furore in the state, though the chief minister and his officials promptly said he was not referring to these two constables.
